    Default Dropbox system tray icon missing

    Hello,

    I don't know if it's a DropBox issue, sorry. System tray icon is not displayed.
    However, the application works just fine.

    Thanks.

    And what desktop are you using?

    If it's Plasma5 (KDE), there is a known issue that on some systems the dropbox and other old-style icons are displayed completely transparent.
    This has been fixed on Sunday, an update is on the way for Leap 42.1 and should be in the update repo early next week.

    If you cannot (or do not want to) wait for the update, you can already install it now from the update-test repo:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.opensuse.org/update/leap/42.1-test/x86_64/xembed-sni-proxy-0.0.1git~20151104~ded1538-3.1.x86_64.rpm

    Thanks wolfi323 for quick reply.
    Yes, I confirm you desktop is Plasma 5 KDE.
    Good to know the update is on the way!

    Hi wolfi323,

    Has this bug now been fixed in the stock Leap 42.1 repos? I still do not get the pidgin icon in my system tray. It does not appear to be displayed transparently either whereas, a few days ago, it was a transparent space between the other icons in my system tray.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Hello Gordon,

    I had to execute the command suggested above to make it appear (Dropbox icon). I can confirm Yast update did not solved it.
    Run the update and reboot.
    Hope it helps.

    sudo rpm -Uvh http://download.opensuse.org/update/...3.1.x86_64.rpm

    Then you have a different issue.

    Is dropbox actually running? Use the system monitor (Ctrl+ESC) to check.

    Is it hidden maybe? Try to click on the up arrow next to the clock.

    Hi,

    just have the same problem. No dropbox icon. Under opensuse 42.1, all up to date. Tried to install xembed-sni-proxy but plasma5 must downgraded in this case which I have not done. Seems that xembed-sni-proxy does not work with the newest plasma5.

    cheers

    Have you looked at the date of this thread?
    It doesn't apply at all any more.

    Tried to install xembed-sni-proxy but plasma5 must downgraded in this case which I have not done. Seems that xembed-sni-proxy does not work with the newest plasma5.
    The "newest plasma5" includes xembed-sni-proxy (since 5.5.0), there's no point to install the old stand-alone version we only offered so that there is old-style system tray icon support in Plasma 5.4 (as shipped with Leap 42.1).

    And it wouldn't help either.

    The problem you experience is a bug in dropbox (not something in KDE), it just doesn't create an icon if it detects a new-style system tray.
    See here for a workaround:
